Four standard Torx screws under the kickstand secure the display through the rear of the tablet.

The display is connected by two taped-down ribbon cables. They're a bit short, but allow enough room for relatively safe disconnection.

A display-first disassembly procedure is good news for any mobile device—the screen is a high-priority component and should be easily replaceable.

The screen is a fused display/digitizer assembly, which makes opening easier, but makes the replacement part more expensive.

That said, there are no other major components mounted to this assembly, so display swaps should be fairly painless.
